Galbestos asbestos removal at Rowallan

About The Project

Galbestos asbestos removal at Rowallan, Rowallan Power Station is located about 200 metres downstream of Rowallan Dam, which forms Lake Rowallan. The dam is one of the two main headwater storages in the Mersey Forth scheme and assists in regulating the water supply to four downstream power stations

The scope of works was high risk requiring a level of expertise to ensure a safe environment for our workers and a quality result was delivered. The Rowallan station was originally clad in an Galbestos asbestos coated steel sheet material which was rapidly deteriorating due to the relatively severe weather conditions in the area. The work removed and replaced all existing sheeting of approximately 1800m2.

requiring the removal of asbestos and reinstatement in an active High Voltage switchyard and above a water coarse, A 6-level scaffolding was erected to access the walls and roof for removal. Great detail and attention being given during the removal to maintain all areas unaffected by asbestos to ensure the historical value of the premises remains as well as environmental contaminants were controlled. In addition to the works conditions on site are extreme with cold winter mornings challenging the works progress due to frost and snow.
